" 'These poets have as much of our ordinary working-day brains as the rest of us; their meditations are as subtle, their philosophies no less, but no more, surely based – they remark what we do and turn it into rhythm. But the faculty of compressing such meaning into a phrase is denied to them. We have to cover as much ground in their verse as in our own thoughts, and consequently we tire as soon.' [--Charles Williams]

The penultimate sentence may merit the lash for irresponsibility. The final sentence, however, is an acute modernist caveat made by one who cannot have considered himself a member of that strange, abrupt Elect. It anticipates an overwhelming defect in the plethoric manners of the confessional mode, as much as it does the point-by-point didacticism of typical Movement verse." --Geoffrey Hill

In that thicket of bitter roots.
